Alumna Zoe Charalambous releases pedagogy of Writing Fantasy
This book presents the innovative pedagogy of Writing Fantasy: a method for exploring and shifting one’s identity as a writer. The book draws on qualitative research with undergraduate creative writing students and fills a gap in the literature exploring creative writing pedagogy and creative writing exercises. Based on the potential to shift writer identity through creative writing exercises and the common ground that these share with the stance of the Lacanian analyst, the author provides a set of guidelines, exercises and case studies to trace writing fantasy, evidenced in one’s creative writing texts and responses about creative writing. This innovative work offers fresh insights for scholars of creativity, Lacan and psychosocial studies, and a valuable new resource for students and teachers of creative writing.
J.S. Loveard Collaboration with Via Nova
J.S. Loveard, one of the Literary Practice PhDs from the Warwick Writing Programme, has collaborated with Birmingham-based experimental vocal ensemble Via Nova on their recording project Where the Marsh Plants Grow. He contributes a text for a brand new piece “Rogation” which through the medieval holy festival of Rogationtide meditates on the past, boundaries, and violence. Through improvisation, the piece was devised by Via Nova with guidance by their musical director, Daniel Galbreath and J.S. Loveard. It sits proudly alongside works by contemporary composers Kerry Andrew, Emily Doolittle, Percy Pursglove, and Olly Chalk in an album that explores ‘the many ways through which we relate to the earth: through science and agriculture, through metaphor and memory, through our very bodies’.
Where the Marsh Plants Grow was a recording project funded by Arts Council England, and as of Friday 15th May, is available for CD and download on the Focused Silence record label: https://www.focusedsilence.com/product/via-nova-where-the-marsh-plants-grow/
